Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Lakewood

Lakewood Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Lakewood is a classic American suburb nestled in the heart of Los Angeles County in California. This charming city is sometimes referred to as the “Instant City” due to its seemingly instant growth from simple lima bean fields to a full city in a matter of years. Lakewood offers a variety of things to do, see and experience, and the neighboring areas hold some of the biggest and most beautiful cities in the entire state.

Like many other areas across the country, California has experienced an increase in substance misuse problems, overdoses and related hospitalizations over the past several years. California has been one of those with the highest rate of overdoses due to drug use, along with states like Ohio. This seemingly out-of-control problem may make recovery seem out of reach to someone suffering from substance use issues, but there is hope for recovery with proper treatment.

To start changing your lifestyle, you should first learn more about recovery and what that entails, as well as the multitude of Lakewood, CA drug rehab and Lakewood, CA alcohol rehab options available to you.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    A residential treatment program is an inpatient treatment program which offers a safe environment for which patient to have continuous access to medical professionals and counselors. Many of those who attend a residential treatment program will go through detox first. During residential treatment, the individual being treated will live in the facility and spend his or her time being monitored by medical professionals, going to recovery meetings, learning about treatment and recovery and attending individual and group therapy sessions. Those with severe or long-term addictions may benefit from inpatient treatment most. Lakewood offers multiple options for residential treatment programs.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs, also referred to as PHP, are often the next step in treatment for someone who has completed an inpatient program. Partial hospitalization means a patient lives at home or in another stable environment and regularly travels to the treatment center every day for multiple hours in order to work on his recovery. These programs may consist of counseling, lectures on addiction or recovery, recovery education and meetings like AA or NA. In addition to being used as a step in a longer recovery program, PHP may be right for someone with a less severe addiction who is looking for a treatment that is comprehensive, but not as intense as a residential program.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient programs are individuals who live at home or in safe housing provided by the treatment facility while attending treatment a few times per week for a few hours at a time. These programs may consist of recovery meetings, counseling or addiction education. Often, those in treatment will go on to outpatient programs once they have successfully completed residential and partial hospitalization, but outpatient programs can also be utilized by those who require a less intense program.

While having so many different treatment options may seem overwhelming, there are people to help you determine what the best course of action is for you. Things you should consider when choosing a program include whether or not medical detox is required, how intensive you feel your treatment should be and the length of your drug or alcohol addiction.

Detox Centers

Detox centers offer a way to detox from the substance you’ve been misusing in a stable environment where you are monitored by trained medical professionals. The goal of detox is to help remove the substance you’ve been using from your body in order to help you move past the period of withdrawal without you feeling the need to use again. Whether or not detox is needed depends on the length of misuse and which substance you have been using. You can find multiple options in your area, which include drug detox and alcohol detox centers.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Going to regular recovery meetings is often considered a vital component of aftercare and can be extremely useful for an individual who has recently completed drug rehab or alcohol rehab.

There are many different options for meetings in and around Lakewood.
